Excellent! I remember picking up a copy of issue #2 of this title at the comics shop back in the day and finding it fascinating reading. Anarchy was one of the comics that bridged the gap between the undergrounds and the indie titles of the '80s.

Well, actually I read the comic books when I was a young anarchist back in the early '80s... made a big impression on me, definitely informed my hippie-punk hybrid anarchist attitude and aesthetic... Brought back memories to look at them again... Good stuff (mostly). Spain Rodriguez's depictions of the Spanish anarchists and Makhnovists are the most didactic.
